"We are more than 300 million PC gamers worldwide," reads an open letter to Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo from hardware manufacturer Razer, published in the Wall Street Journal. "And this legion is growing every day. Today there are more PC gamers than all console gamers combined and we have been silent in the face of the closed gaming systems that have been propagated. We look forward to an open world where console and PC gamers will stand side by side as gamers in arms."

Mysterious pronouncements on the state of the industry aside, it seems that Razer is planning something big for August 26 -- which just happens to coincide with PAX Prime. The "major announcement," whatever it might be, will take place at 6pm CEST in Seattle.

What could it be? We'll have to wait until Friday to find out. In the meantime, you can find out more and sign up for further information here.
